Instagram Roundup #126: 2015 Year in Review

by Jamie Sanford on January 1, 2016

Here are all of the other Instagram Roundups!

The first Flatiron photo included snow!

I had dinner in January with my sister and her mother-in-law, Joan. Sadly, at the end of this year, Joan lost her battle with cancer. #fuckcancer

We continued going to estate sales, including the best one ever, at a teacher’s former home.

March brought a road trip through parts of the south, and we ended up in New Orleans, a favorite destination.

We went on an airboat tour, and I got to hold this little gator!

In April, I went to Florida for my Mom’s birthday, and surprised everyone else in my family too!

Mom and I baked together.

I also fished with Dad and Pete.

I also hung out with my nephew Cooper.

It was a year full of visits to our local parks.

I also tried new chip flavors, like All Dressed, from Canada.

I took a wonderful course called Miracle Worker, and met a bunch of amazing ladies.

I got to spend much time with wonderful friends.

David and I conquered the corn dogs at the fair.

We went to a mineral museum to see a room of fluorescing rocks!

I found a rooster at the state fair that looked like David Bowie’s character in Labyrinth, Jareth.

I wore a hat at almost every opportunity.

Lots of instafortunes.

We had 2 lovely weekends at the Jersey Shore.

We had a ball at #theknotgala in October.

More Flatiron photos were taken.

Halloween was eventful and one of the most fun I have had in ages.

I tweeted something that charmed me and it became my most popular tweet ever.

I took William to Pennsylvania for a weekend of trains.

I got to have dinner with my beautiful sister in November.

We went to Sandy Hook in NJ – more on that soon.

We took a holiday road trip, and started out strong, getting selfies with Santa Claus and Ms. Virginia!

We also had a great stop in Charleston, South Carolina. I wish we would have had more time there.

In addition to seeing our family, we got to spend time with friends. The selfie stick resulted in too many options to not share them all.

We made our final stop at Congaree National Park on our way home. A lifetime of smirky selfies with this wonderful man will never be enough.

Instagram Roundup #125

by Jamie Sanford on August 28, 2015

Here are all of the other Instagram Roundups!

I posted this collage of 15 years of William and I on our meet-a-versary.


The most beautiful day! We have had some insane heat, so this was very welcome.

Flowers at DeKorte Park.

Another instafortune. I am getting more into photographing these with more context.

David is back, and we celebrated with estate sailing!

I am a sucker for an old camera. If this one had been more reasonably priced, I would have bought it. Look at the manual controls!

Saw these light switches in one of the houses we went to. They are really lovely.

It looks like there was definitely some sort of Photoshop back in the 70s.

Instagram Roundup #124

by Jamie Sanford on July 29, 2015

Here are all of the other Instagram Roundups!

Wisdom from Barbra.

I highly recommend China: Through the Looking Glass at the Met. It is a stunning installation.

A night of bad food choices and sketchy fair rides with David.

Tilt-A-Whirl totally holds up.

We spent some time at the Franklin Mineral Museum on July 4th.

I created a collage for “style evolution” day for #radicalselflovejuly on Instagram. I guess I don’t actually regret any of these?

William’s carb display – on a Noritake Cher Blanc soup bowl.

I injured my eye in an unfortunate contact lens incident, and was AMAZED at how quickly it healed. The human body is nuts.

A #tbt post, me and the ride-on Big Bird. That carpet is glorious!

Instagram Roundup #123

by Jamie Sanford on June 10, 2015

Here are all of the other Instagram Roundups!

When I was in Florida for Mom’s birthday, Cooper always wanted to sit with me. I’m about to do my makeup here, and he wouldn’t give it up, so I put him in the chair next to me. He apparently likes it now.

Estate sailing!

We went on a crazy estate sale journey on a stunning spring day.

Look at that sky!

We’ve been frequenting a local park, and they have peacocks there!

There’s a gorgeous art installation in Madison Square Park. Selfie bait.

We went to Canada, and I continued my journey of trying different chip flavors. These are “all dressed,” which are just slightly spicy and delicious.

I don’t know how this works because the train is moving but you can see me there in St. Clair station in Toronto.

I finally found an estate sale with antlers. I bought too many of them.

I got to spend a gorgeous evening at a park and Shake Shack with these wonderful women who are taking a course with me. Thanks, Internet!

Instagram Roundup #122

by Jamie Sanford on May 6, 2015

Here are all of the other Instagram Roundups!

Peeps = Instagram GOLD.

I posted this image of my tough siblings Robyn and Pete on National Siblings Day.

We bought this blue chair at an estate sale to replace the awkward zebra chair we’ve had for a few years. This chair had been in the house for about 30 years, and for 30 years before that, was in an office at Prudential.

I ate one piece of the tuna, it just wasn’t my bag. How beautiful is this though?

We had really wonderful weather when I was in and out of the city for the Tabletop Show at 41 Madison. You cannot beat this view, no matter how many times you see it.

More food, sorry. This burger was so beautiful that I had to. Also, delicious.

Then I went all sneaky to Florida for Mom’s birthday, and went to Nan’s house to surprise her too!

Mom and I got pedicures and then I baked a peach cobbler while she prepared shrimp. We had a lovely time.

We played Sequence, because it is what we do.

We also did some fishing in the backyard, because Mom and Dad have a lake back there, so why not? We throw our fish back because the gators need something to eat. We saw a gator right after taking this photo.
